NOTICE OF PRELIMINARY RESULT OF INVITATION TO NEGOTIATE (“ITN”) FOR THE DESIGN AND INSTALLATION OF A TICKET ADMISSION SYSTEM FOR THE FLORIDA STATE FAIR
Pursuant to the ITN, the Evaluation Committee met on July 13, 2016, and reviewed and ranked the responses to the ITN. The Evaluation Committee chose Gateway Ticketing Systems, Inc. (“Gateway”) and TyTix, LLC (“TyTix”), the first and second ranked respondents, respectively, as finalists in the ITN process. Following presentations by each finalist, the Evaluation Committee met on July 27, 2016, and voted to begin negotiations with Gateway, pursuant to the ITN. Accordingly, the Authority will enter into negotiations with Gateway, as the respondent that appears to best meet the needs and requirements of the Authority. If for any reason Gateway and the Authority cannot arrive at a mutual agreement that would result in the issuance of a contract, the Authority reserves the right to terminate negotiations, to reject the proposal, and to continue negotiations with the second-ranked respondent that may lead to the issuance and award of a contract.
